pesto egg

Yesterday we went to Kyoto for some "family stuff" (tell you about this in another post), the weather forecasted snow. There was snow but it was just on the mountains, they looked like someone dusted them with powdered sugar. Having snow on the mountains made the wind very icy, cutting through basically anything you were wearing...brrr. (Now this is winter! not like the weather we were having.)

The other day for breakfast we had egg salad on toast. Instead of adding sweet pickles, I added a teaspoon of leftover pesto and a teaspoon of mayo to two hard boiled eggs.

It was delicious on walnut raisin bread. Something different, I'm making this again the next time I have leftover pesto.

We have a 3-day weekend here, hope you are enjoying your weekend!

What a cool way to use pesto. I'm going to try that one day. Keep warm and enjoy the wintery weather for me.

Hi Kat - That's a great idea.... I nveer thought of pesto and eggs! When I used to work in a restaurant, we used to add mayo, and whipping cream to our eggs....

Great idea! I have some powdered pesto mix leftover, I wonder if that would work?

hey Kat! Is there coffee as well? And if so, how much coffee? It will be good to make one at home. Lavendar tea is soothing!

K and S said...

ooh more snow people, Rowena, can't wait to see them :)

hmm never heard of pesto mix, Lori, will be interesting to see how you like it :)

hope you like it Deb :)

coffee? where at Starbucks? yeah they have coffee, depending on what size you order or what type you order, you can pay from 290 yen or higher (about US$2.90 or higher).

take care everyone.
